Shortlist Online article by Gary Ogden
“I, what with being a human being and all, like dinosaurs. I have liked dinosaurs for a very long time – as soon as I found out what they were, essentially. Oh, giant monsters will big sharp teeth that fight each other? Hmmmmm, I wonder if I will like these creatures that have seemingly been designed solely to please children. YES, yes I will, and yes I did, and yes I do.
“I’ve seen all the dinosaur films, I had all the dinosaur toys, and can do all the dinosaur impressions (ask me next time we’re out) and I don’t think this obsession will ever stop. Which is why, as an adult, I went to Dinosaurs in the Wild, an attraction by the 02 arena that is, yes, ostensibly, for children.
